  5. Mocked by teacher in post conference.
    That's one way to handle it. But I kept my mouth shut, graduated on time, and am now a working nurse and that instructor is nothing but a distant memory. Had I left, I wouldn't have any patients to...

  9. Does a degree in psych or counseling complement a degree in psych nursing in NYC?

  11. Does a degree in psych or counseling complement a degree in psych nursing in NYC?

  13. Evening shift - yea or nay?
    If I were to work 8s, I'd work second shift. Besides the wonderfullness of not waking up before the birds, it's a little slower paced then, so you could potentially hang out with the patients more,...

  18. I Lost All Respect For A Colleague Today
    No, but there's something weird about coming on a nursing forum asking about the odds of you finding an attractive nurse to hook up with. It's called "reading the room." Learning to do that might...
